Luc Magloire has called on the publisher of Anecdote to rectify and correct the claims by publishing the letter in a similar manner as the accusing article. This is in conformity with the Law.

Cameroon’s minister of trade has rubbished claims of a shady business especially in the importation of fish as held by Anecdote newspaper. In a letter to the publisher, Minister Luc Magloire Mbarga Antanga denies any wrongdoing.

Anecdote published a story in its 915th edition claiming that the minister was involved in a big “mafia” in the importation of fish and other things. The paper also brandished a picture of the minister on its front page, he has pointed out.

The letter was written on April 12.

But Minister Magloire argues in his letter that his ministry is not in charge of fishing, much less of animal rearing. As a result, it cannot issue any authorisation for any fish products or canned goods.He reiterates that there is a ministry for it.

He further reminds the publisher that Law no 2015/018 of 21 December 2015 gives enough liberty to every business personto operate as either a wholesaler or a retailer. This is also in relation to Law no 90/031 of August 1990, he adds.

He ends by urging the publisher to publish the correction letter in the same manner as the accusing article.
